That's he first good argument against him in this thread, DPOY winners are usually dominated by taller players which would pretty much disqualify Dort. The shortest recent winner would be Draymond Green who won it at 6'6" 230 LBS. Gary Payton would be Dort's path to it

He has the tools to be, it's a crime he went undrafted

Before this thread, if I was asked if Lugentz Dort is the

a) name of an NBA player, or
b) botanical name for a type of thistle

I would’ve got it wrong.

he's fouling a lot. maybe that settles down. maybe not. he doesn't have the size of any of the previous dpoy-type wing defenders, either. i recall devin booker giving him some problems because of his height. he was drawing offensive fouls at a likely unsustainable rate prior to the season suspension, which had something to do with powering his rise on some metrics that use player tracking (RAPTOR, RPM).
